Red Sox Recap: No Doc, no regrets

On a day when Roy Halladay was perfect, the Red Sox were not left to lament the one who got away. The Sox took their shot at acquiring the former Blue Jays ace last summer, but 10 months later, even as Halladay dominates (7-3, 1.99) for the Phillies, the Sox have been just as well off for not having acquired the man who has been the best pitcher in baseball since 2002.

 

That is because acquiring Halladay would have come at a cost of Clay Buchholz, who continued his own emergence as a top-of-the-rotation pitcher on Saturday, as he outperformed reigning AL Cy Young winner Zack Greinke in a 1-0 victory over the Royals. (For details of the game, see Closing Time.)
